Vicoustic Acoustic Room Solutions
Vicoustic is a Portugese company specialising in acoustic room treatments and solutions. Now established as one of the main-stay brands in the HiFi and Pro Audio markets, Vicoustic can dramatically improve the acoustics of your room, and in turn the quality of your audio.
The research-based manufacturer offers a range of innovative products and services, representing the outcome of years of development, testing and optimisation. Vicoustic's engineers work in strategic partnership with other industry sectors, including science institutes and universities, as well as gaining regular feedback from some of Europe's leading acoustic engineers.
Vicoustic's mission is simple: Improve the way you listen to your music in an affordable and accessible way.
César Carapinha, Vicoustic's CEO told StereoNET:
Many people buy expensive speakers, and use them in very bad acoustic conditions. Now it's possible to improve the way you listen to your music, in an affordable and accessible way. Vicoustic offers products for all budgets and highly specialised staff to help you create your ideal listening room.
Most listening areas are not purpose-built. That luxury is usually reserved for recording studios, so generally areas doubling as living areas become the placeholder for our investment into a high-fidelity sound system. Overlooked all too often is the room itself. We spend hours upon hours pouring over websites, in Hi-Fi stores, carefully hand-picking our system components. In reality, virtually all Hi-Fi systems can benefit from acoustically treating the room itself.
The best part is with so many products and solutions from Vicoustic, benefits can be experienced for often less than the cost of a high quality CD player or amplifier.
Vicoustic offer a consultancy service when you send them your plans or photos of your room, and their engineers will recommend the treatment and products that will achieve the best results. There's even interactive simulators that can be used to better understand what you need on the Vicoustic website. Ultimately though room treatment need not be difficult. With some basic understanding, you can purchase a few products to start the process and easily apply them yourself, building upon the treatment over time. Or of course you can work with your dealer to manage the process for you.
StereoNET will look at some of the Vicoustic products in more detail as we near completion of our dedicated audio room in the coming weeks.
